2011 Overview & Book of the Year

I like books. I like lots of different kinds of books. And I think this years reading selection really shows the breath of my tastes. Just take the first five books; a star trek novel, 2 classic YA books, a fantasy/horror book, and a non-fiction philosophy book. This year was also the year of mind-bendingly-weird books like the Skin Mapthe Bone HousePrince of Europe, and the Spirit Flyer books. But I managed to squeak in at my goal of 50 books for the year.

This year there was no contest for book of the year. Which may seem weird when I tell you it was a tie. I kinda had to pick both books because one is the sequel of the other. And since the first book ends on a kinda of cliff hanger, well you’ll probably want to read both anyway.

The 2011 Books of the Year are… Stephen R Lawhead’s The Skin Map and The Bone House. And I cannot wait for the third book, The Spirit Well, of the Bright Empires series to come out.
